Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) doesn’t let swarms of stinging insects interrupt his workouts.
Outside the water, an ITK spy reports that swarms of bees and wasps were “everywhere,” and that more than a dozen children were stung. Schiff, however, appeared unfazed.
One potential reason for the bees: Children at the pool were taking part in an annual Labor Day tradition where they lay on their towels and a “fairy” came around and dropped off candy — red licorice and Dummy lollipops were spotted, along with other sugary treats.
According to his spokeswoman, Schiff will be doing a triathlon later this fall — just months after he completed his last one in June.
Tallyho Swim Club did not return a call seeking comment.
